June 2014 - Happy Campers

Sweet summer greets us with lazy days at the lake, evening concerts in the park and tomatoes fresh from the garden. We’re enjoying every moment of these long, warm days before Mother Nature cranks up that thermostat!

First, breathe deeply and savor the aroma of the sanctuaries created by members of the Shasta Lake Garden Project. They’ve beautified their community one blossom at a time, and you can join the fun at their Country Garden Faire.

Many of us will celebrate the start of summer by hitting the road — and if you’ve got a tiny traveler in tow, never fear. We’ll show you the best ways to prepare for taking your toddler on an adventure. Need a destination? Picture-perfect Castle Lake promises an idyllic retreat from the daily grind.

If you’re anything like us, you have a list of breweries, wineries and restaurants that are on your “must try” list — if only you could find the time. Redding West Rotary has just the ticket. Taste of Redding will showcase treats from 20 restaurants, a dozen wineries and 15 regional brewers, along with live music, face painting and more. All proceeds benefit Rotary’s service projects.

This is also the month that we honor the dynamic dads in our lives. If your special man has always wanted to fly like an eagle, treat him to an adrenaline rush and check out the Jetovator. Used with a personal watercraft, this contraption lets you fly over the water.

Start your summer right with Enjoy Movies in the Park, a free, family-friendly event. Meet us at Caldwell Park at dusk every Friday night in June, starting June 6 — before we show a movie on our giant inflatable screen, we’ll pass the hat in support of our own Ronda Ball, who’s competing in Dancing With the Stars: Shasta County Style to raise money for One SAFE Place. Enjoy some family time, catch a fun flick and help out one of our favorite organizations. We’ll see you there!

Happy Father’s Day and welcome to summer. Enjoy!
